Reflection: Advanced Students The Skeleton Part 1 - Section 3: Independent Work


What I loved about this project was that I was able to see that my advanced students really took this to a higher level.  I saw them wanting to make even tinier pieces so that they could include the different parts of the fingers and toes.

They really were able to take their time on this project and really show what they were learning about all of the different bones in the body.

Some of the more advanced students even counted how many rib bones that "Jack" had and made sure that they're own skeleton matched.
